Maybe I should create a new page on this website where I give a short explanation of what I'm up to in my dissertation?
Maybe it could be an extended abstract?
Or perhaps there would be basic information plus consent forms and other more general information.
It would be useful to be able to include a link to this page when approaching people with my plans e.g. for interview, observation. I think a link is better than an attachment. Particularly in terms of gaining consent to participate in the observation research, it would be good to be able to use this information/site in terms of gaining trust.
